Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat. Each week Jessi chooses a topic (scheduled in advance) that’s not book related so we that we can get to know our fellow bloggers better – and to know more about them than just books. I’m thrilled to join in and I hope to participate every week from here on out. I hope you’ll join in too – check out the details here!
This week’s topic: Favorite Animals
I adore animals in general. There’s nothing that pisses me off more than to see an animal that has been neglected or abused. IMHO any person who can hurt an animal is sick and deserves the same treatment dealt upon them. Okay, now that I’ve had my soap box moment (which could go on for MUCH longer), let me shift to the positive. My favorite animals.
Favorite animal #1: Buffy
What? I’m supposed to talk about types of animals? LOL I know, but see, there’s no animal that I love more than MY dog – Buffy. (Plus I missed the Pets Life of a Blogger Post) She’s an almost 2 year old Taco Terrier… What’s a Taco Terrier, you ask? (if you didn’t I’m going to tell you anyway LOL). A Taco Terrier is a mix of a Chihuahua and a Toy Fox Terrier. From experience, I can say that this gives you 14 pounds of the ultimate cuddle buddy and most playful dog around. She’s the sweetest thing, though a wee-bit territorial. She wins over most – My mom is not a dog person (though definite animal lover), but she adores my Buffy.
What? You want pictures of Buffy? I thought you’d never ask 😉

Other favorite animals
From here, it gets really hard to assign any rank, because like I said I really love them all. I love wild dogs – wolves and fox are my favorites I think. Big cats are also gorgeous. I have to admit, that while I would never want one to be hurt or mistreated in any way, I’m very afraid of birds. That includes ducks, geese, blue jays, chicken, etc. I don’t know, I think my experiences have always been very bad with birds – they are aggressive and scare me!
